Last month for North America at least, MAC Cosmetics launched their well awaited Archie Girls' collection. This March, the 14th to be exact, MAC had a special launch for the event, and I was lucky enough to be an invitee! After rushing home from classes, I tried to put myself together quickly, but still look nice, as it was my first event of this type. I went for a pretty relaxed look and wore a white linen pants, a mint green cami and my DIY denim vest. I also kept my make up simple, just an easy winged liner look, some N.Y.C. bronzer, blush and the Revlon "raspberry pie" lip butter. Sadly I forgot to take more pictures of my outfit and make up.

Onto the actual event.. The atmosphere was quite nice and reminiscent of what you would expect if the comic were to come to life, old school jukebox music, mini hotdog and "burgers" as well as the cutest drinks I've ever seen! Sadly I didn't get one, or take a picture but they were in short wide glasses with striped straws. I'm sure like in the comics I saw some persons drinking ice cream floats. And of course, Archie had to be there with Veronica and Betty fighting over him, as usual haha. I had mixed feelings about Betty and Veronica in my younger days when I read more comics, but collection and outfit-wise, I was loving Veronica more.
The next thing that intrigued me was Prom Princess satin-finish blush, however, I feel that this is dupable and it was really the packaging that drew me in haha. (probably for the whole collection really, I love the white packaging!)
All in all, the collection is very nice, the packaging was well thought out and a nice refresh from the typical black, but unless you're a collector or a fan of Archie you could probably skip it out as many of the lip colours and blushes have been done already. The only thing I would really go back for would be the Pearl Glide eyeliners, those were very pigmented, especially "Designer Purple" which was very different from what I typically see.
I really enjoyed the event and I would like to say thank you to Tyrell my bf, for encouraging me speak up and take the initiative and thank you so much to Tennille at the MAC counter, who was really helpful! As well as my sister, Erica who tagged along to the event with me.
